Giraffes Can't Dance


We have been learning about the importance of having a growth mindset. We explored this through the book Giraffes Can't Dance. We found out about Gerald the giraffe and decided we could help him. We thought of lots of positive messages to tell him to encourage him to have a growth mindset.

You need to keep trying and trying!

Come on, you can do this! 

Keep on trying!

Keep practising!

Believe in yourself!

Put your growth mindset on!

Never give up! 


We thought about what we can do and what we can't do, yet. We decided that we are all going to have a growth mindset in everything we do!
